HUGE VERBAL FOR ZIPS

By mrasor Published: June 24, 2006

Akron just reeled in the 19th best center in the country.


Steve Swiech, at 6-foot-9, is probably the best recruit of the Keith Dambrot era.


The Elizabeth, Pa. native might be the best mid-major commitment of the year, Scout.com says.


Swiech (pronounced SWICK) averaged 26.8 points, 12 rebounds and eight blocks per game as a junior.


Other candidates for his verbal were Duquesne, Kent State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Xavier.


In this Scout.com story, Swiech told a reporter he hoped things work out with Pitt.


This is just another indication that the region is starting to respect Akron. Way to go, coach.
